Account Lockout is a note-worthy security standard in windows, established solely to prevent intruder's access on systems. Account lockout prevents the breach, however it doesn't explain you the sources and causes for the actions explicitly. Unlocking the accounts for an unknown cause opens the gate again. The unknown cause could very well be a potential threat or a program with the expired credential. Also on the other side of the lock out action, the locked out account denies service for regular users and demands to raise a help-desk request. Next, a "brute force attack" intended for password hacking could lock out multiple accounts and this is now called as Denial of Service (DoS) attack.
